Drive south from Miami and you’ll discover an intriguing collection of islands strung together like a shell necklace, each with its own personality. First up is kitschy-cute Key Largo, where T-shirt shops outnumber the tropical fish. Dive into the clear waters here, then rest your salty head at a boutique-style hotel. If you continue down Overseas Highway, you’ll get to Islamorada and its purple-hued sunsets. Further south still, Duck Key beckons families with a summer camp vibe. Whether fish trophies and shiplap or cosmopolitan coastal float your boat, there’s a hotel, and a Key, to match your every mood.
